On Saturday, I was a Wok star (well one can only dream) as I had the opportunity once again being in the company of the School of Wok team as I attended their Full day Chinese Banquet class.
OMG it was a banquet so many goodies for us to make and try too.
Having browsed at the menu upon arrival I immediately knew what we were in for one hell of an enjoyable day.
I mean who I’m I to complain? Spending a day cooking an array of dishes from Spring Onion pancake, Hunan Spicy Beef right through to Stir Fried Green Beans with Chilli Hoisin Sauce delicious.
As I arrived we were introduced to our chef Melissa, who gave us an introduction about the cookery school as well as what we will be doing throughout the day.
We started the day by prepping our spices for the Spring Onion pancake. Working at our workstations in pairs. Spices consisting of mushrooms ginger as well as Chilli
As she also taught us some very effective introduction to knife skills very handy I must say
As we demonstrated new techniques in preparing/cooking our own banquet washed down with lovely beverages their was a selection of wines alongside soft drinks we were well looked after throughout the day.
It was nice to relax and learn a new skill whilst at the same time networking with likeminded foodies.
